Summary: This discussion of the ecological geography of the oceans synthesizes locally-focused studies to support a rational partition of the entire surface of the oceans into ecological provinces that are now widely accepted by oceanographers and fisheries scientists. Using information from recent research as well as data and images from earth-orbiting satellites, Ecological Geography of the Sea, Second Edition describes how the pelagic ecosystem everywhere responds to the effects of mesoscale eddies, planetary waves, tide sea-ice and other oceanographic phenomena
